The Hamels Foundation is excited to celebrate the opening of its new office in downtown Springfield. “This new office location will allow The Hamels Foundation to continue to expand its presence in the Springfield community as we work to raise funds to benefit education in the Ozarks,” explained Kelly Anderson, Director of Operations for The Hamels Foundation.
“By becoming a more recognizable part of our community, we are going to be able to establish additional relationships that will only enhance our abilities to impact the lives of children through our existing programs,” continued Anderson. “Currently we have a very dedicated donor base that is passionate about bettering education for youth in the Ozarks and we are excited about the potential we have for growth.”
The Hamels Foundation is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization founded by Philadelphia Phillies 2008 World Series MVP pitcher Cole Hamels and his wife Heidi, who is from Buffalo, MO. The Hamels Foundation has a dual mission to provide support for quality education in the Springfield, MO and Philadelphia, PA communities, as well as establish a school in Malawi, Africa. The Hamels Foundation is dedicated to enriching the lives of children and giving them the tools to achieve their goals. 100% of all funds raised by the Springfield, MO office stays in the Ozarks to benefit local children.
